As of 2015, Figi?s catalogs offer a wide variety of gourmet food gifts, such as snack baskets, candy and baked goods. The catalogs also contain meat products ranging from sirloin burgers to beer bratwurst, and the company occasionally includes themed novelty apparel and home decor.
Figi?s spotlights different product offerings by releasing seasonal and themed catalogs. For example, one 2015 spring catalog showcased sugar-free versions of foods that are usually considered decadent. The catalog featured desserts, such as pound cake and sweet rolls, and popular candy and snack mixes, including peanut brittle, assorted nuts, gourmet popcorn and jellybeans. The 2015 Taste of Summer catalog emphasizes cookout and party items, such as gourmet mustard, smoked salmon, chicken wings, trail mix and grilling meat combos.
The company was founded in 1944 by John Figi, a federal cheese inspector who marketed his own aged cheddar products by sending postcard advertisements in the mail. The company?s longstanding authentic Wisconsin cheeses and spreads, such as edam, caraway and bacon cheddar, are staple offerings found in most Figi?s catalogs. They are often paired with seasoned smoked-sausage logs, ranging from steakhouse blend to cheddar jalapeno. Figi?s catalogs are also well-known for their extensive selections of gourmet chocolate products, such as fudge assortments, petits fours, cherry cordials and chocolate-dipped sorbet.
